Variety reports that Greta Gerwig, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her work in "Frances Ha," has been cast as Sally, "a female Peter Pan who has no idea of where she's going in life." Sally is married when the show begins, but she is realizing he's not the man for her -- "a breakup is inevitable," according to the casting report.

Sally will find support in her circle of friends and family who are "often too willing to give 'good' advice that can backfire." That circle of friends will consist of a married couple, a party girl BFF and hot nerd with an unrequited love for Sally.

Gerwig will receive a producer credit for the "HIMYD" pilot and if the show is picked up to series by CBS, Gerwig will also write for the show.
